Russia confirms death of Russian IL-22 commander

Major Viktor Klimov, who was on board the Russian IL-22 that was shot down over the Sea of Azov on January 14, was killed. The Russian Federation confirmed this information, saying that he "died heroically in the line of duty."

The network writes that the commander died of shrapnel wounds while the plane was still in the air. As a result, the co-pilot, who was also wounded, had to land the damaged IL-22.
